Bay of Islands Trip

A travel blog entry by carlosb1978


For our 1st wedding anniversary we decided to visit the Bay of Islands about 5 hours drive north from Auckland.

The world's largest breakfast was followed by a trip to Okiato, back on the car ferry to Opua, then to Paihai and finally to the Kerikeri Airport. It was skydiving time. Debi didn't want to so she didn't. There's not much to it really. You …
